At this point in my life, I know that Jesus was always there with me.   The two words, “Always there” speak of an absolute and true element of God’s character.   When I think back throughout my life, I first remember my early childhood and many precious memories of my life at church. My parents took me to church every Sunday morning, Sunday evening, every Wednesday, and if there was any other reason to go to church any other day of the week, we were there. If the church was …

Our brother, Paul spoke those words in Philippians 3:12.   Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ has also laid hold of me. Philippians 3:12   Eighteen years ago, God called me to ministry. I gladly accepted the calling out of true love for God and a deep devotion to Him because of all that …

God Will Help Me – Do You Believe That?

God Will help

  Have you ever wondered if God will help you? Maybe you were confident that God helps other people, but when it comes to believing that God will help you, it’s another story. I have taught people to believe God and to believe that God will help them in various situations, and at the same time, struggled to believe that very thing for myself.   Why do we believe God will help other people but not us?   For many of us, our problem is not with our faith in …

When I read the words, “who, contrary to hope, in hope believed.” Contrary to hope basically says against all hope. The Scripture passage focused on Abraham’s faith. While Hebrews 11 might be the Hall of Faith. Roman’s 4 is Abraham’s induction into the Hall of Faith Ceremony. The whole chapter …
